Editor’s Note: We thank Ruth Matthews for sending us these photos captured at American Beach during the late/early morning hours this week.
According to Matthews, this vehicle was caught in an incoming tide at American Beach. The tide reached the dune, trapping the vehicle, and bringing water to the car door. Matthews also sent a picture we have chosen not to post a photo of a gopher tortoise crushed by a vehicle. “Perfect timing for the county to table the beach ordinance,” said Matthews.
